Bhrigu Lake is a picturesque high altitude glacial lake located at 14,009 ft in Kullu district, Himachal Pradesh. This lake is named after Rishi Bhrigu, a great saint who meditated on the banks of lake thousands of years ago. Usually, it takes days of trekking and crossing difficult terrains to reach such high altitude glacial lake. But Bhrigu lake is the only high altitude glacial lake which can be reached in just two days of the trekking.
It changes its colour every week sometimes it is completely frozen. At times its water is green. At other times its colour changes to royal blue. Bhrigu lake trek is a delight for beginners as it can be done in only three days.
